    Hello ydaria83,

    Make sure that you are not disabling the slider in Dashboard -> Awake -> Homepage. If possible then send us a link to your site so we can take a closer look.

    Ok for some reason when I refresh the page the slideshow disappears but when I open a new window it is there... I guess it is a cache issue?

    Do you have a caching plugin installed such as "WP Super Cache"? If so then try refreshing it along with your browser cache.

    I think it is a problem related to something else. I tried to view it on my iphone and it doesn't view the slider also as soon as the page loads the prettyphoto is opening a lightbox. I will PM you with my info so you can take a look at it? Thank you!

    Alrighty, the problem is that when you click on prettyPhoto it changes your URL and when you refresh the page prettyPhoto automatically opens correct?

    Open up /wp-content/themes/awake/lib/scripts/custom.js and on line 76 you should see this,

    overlay_gallery: false, social_tools: '', 'theme': 'light_square' /* light_square / dark_rounded / light_square / dark_square / facebook */

    Change it like this,

    overlay_gallery: false, social_tools: '', deeplinking: false, 'theme': 'light_square' /* light_square / dark_rounded / light_square / dark_square / facebook */

    Let us know if that works for you.

    Yes it is correct and also the slider disappears. I am going to to make the change, hopefully it would fix both of the problems. Thanks!

  9. Hello,

    I had this same problem and was referred here from here:

    http://mysitemyway.com/support/topic/fancy-image-activated-url-extention?replies=1#post-42087

    So I will make the change but want to know please what happens to such changes when I update my theme, and is there a way to be sure those changes are not overwritten?

    Thanks,

    In this case there is not uswebdesigner. I would create a small changelog of any customizations done so you can remember them when the next update comes.

  11. That works, thanks. Can that simply be added to future upgrades?

    Thanks

    It is a nice feature to have in case someone needs to link to an image on your site and have it open in prettyPhoto so it will probably stay the same. It's a default feature of prettyPhoto so if you want to turn it off then just use those instructions.

    I'm using the infocus theme and currently have all versions of the theme and worpress updated. I followed the instructions above in the custom.js and it did not solve the problem. The url is still automatically changing to "#!prettyPhoto"

    Any suggestions?

    (To reenact whats happening go to dev site, click on one of the four images at the bottom.. then exit out of the lightbox. Then refresh the page.)

    Thank you.

    Yes, they stopped that with the latest prettyPhoto version. See here, http://forums.no-margin-for-errors.com/discussion/1644/how-to-remove-annoying-prettyphoto0-string-from-url/p1.

    There are some other solutions in the bottom of that thread that you can try. I remember one of our customers said it worked for her.
